So here's part one of "The Readiness
Is All"; there are eleven chapters, so you can look forward to
more than two months of it --- unless I get impatient.
The story "Gigolo" was pretty tame by today's standards, so I thought I'd show you a more recent one. "Handsome Is" really has to be read in two separate parts --- though whether you read part two before or after part one may not be all that important.
I should warn you though that unless you can prove you're over twenty-one you really shouldn't read either part without your parents' written approval or I might get into trouble.
This other story, "One Vice at A Time" sounds worse, but since it deals only with religion and violent murder no one cares how young its readers might be.
The day after I put this story up, I got a letter
